Evolution: Obama To Not Really Clarify His Gay Marriage Stance at 1:30
Update: Adviser to President Tells Reporter That Obama "Will Make Some News"

Update: From @drewmtips, Ed Henry says he's told the president will "make some news" with his announcement.

Previously the claim had always been that the president wasn't making news; now he says he is. (Drew's excellent observation.)

I still think, though, he'll try to have it both ways.

...

Time for a gutsy call? I'm betting against it. Oh, he'll talk up gay marriage, but he'll still punt. He'll say something like he wants to help this process along, this process of increasing public acceptance of gay marriage, but he thinks it would be "counterproductive" to endorse it.

I know that doesn't really make sense but neither does Obama, most of the time. Because he lies, and lies usually don't make sense.

One senior official says he'll definitely endorse it after the election.

Marc Ambinder acts as if he knows something:

So do I think President Obama will endorse same-sex marriage today? Yes. Yes I do.

At that last link at Hot Air, some more on the punchline Obama's become, including Jon Stewart goofing on him. Allah also recommends this Onion article.

Obama Blasts Obama's Evasive Stance On Gay Marriage

'The President Needs To Come Clean On His Views,' Obama Says

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama lashed out at President Barack Obama's seemingly evasive stance on gay marriage Tuesday, calling the head-of-state's cagey position on the issue both "cowardly" and "an example of failed leadership."

Speaking to reporters from the White House East Room, Obama said that he has had enough of the president's endless hedging on same-sex marriage and that, as president of the United States, he can't just sit back and take a passive position on what he called the "most important civil rights issue of our time."

"President Obama's inability to simply state whether he's for or against gay marriage is unacceptable," Obama said during a spirited 30-minute address in which he sharply criticized the president for failing time and again to articulate his beliefs. "This nonsense where he says his views are 'evolving' isn't going to cut it anymore. It's patronizing and it's wrong."

"Mr. President," the president continued, "I am waiting for your answer. We all are."


More: Obama always supported gay marriage; he's just been lying about it.

Answering a questionnaire in 1996, he wrote: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages,and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."

Also thanks to @drewmtips
